I am too lazy to think of anything new to write tonight so I'm putting up something old.

A couple years back, a close friend of mine lost his fight against brain cancer, I wrote this then.

When I am gone, release me, let me go-

I have so many things to see and do.

You musn't tie yourself to me with tears, be thankful for our beautiful years.

I gave to you my love, you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust; it's only for a time that we must part so bless the memories within your heart

I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call, and I will come. Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear all my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say "welcome home"


  1. Awww. That was a beautiful poem. Well done. :)


  2. It's more like freestyle prose than a poem. I like it, though, and it brings a gentle warmth to his unfortunate fate.

    Do you hate it too?
    "If you're going through Hell, keep going."

  3. Beautiful poem. I, too, lost a dear friend to brain cancer two years ago this month. This is a perfect tribute to someone dear.

    Thank you for visiting and following my blog! I wanted to visit and return the favor. A pleasure to "meet" you!
